Happy Thanksgiving to all my remaining American readers!
Mrs Drax - being a good ol' Chicagoan - has spent the last two days rustling up some great-tasting victuals: not only for us and our guests but also a batch of pumpkin tartlets (for the kids at our daughter's pre-school to try) and even a spare pumpkin pie for me to take into work in the morning (in...er...five hours' time, actually!). Quite understandably, we Brits have no idea what the holiday involves at all.
She took the picture in our godawfully dimly-lit cottage, but please trust me when I say that they look FAR better in real life...
...and my wife is the best pastry cook on the planet.
Have a lovely holiday, everyone who can!
